SHERMAN, TX -- A man accused in an aluminum heist in Grayson County has been sentenced to 20 years in prison in a plea involving various separate charges.

Court records show Roy Gene Nichols, 48, of Allen, Tex., pleaded guilty on Thursday. He was facing 3 separate felony drug charges, and one count of theft over $20,000.

In the theft case, court documents show he allegedly conspired with at least two other men to help steal 19,000 pounds of aluminum ingots from Denison Industries last October, some of which wound up at a Durant scrap yard.

Investigators say they found one bar on the roof of his home on Smith Oak Road. Deputies and Sherman police also raided that home in November, arresting five people.
